September Reads

September is over, more than 10% of our school year is done (am I not the optimist :D). Today I just want to write down what children read throughout the month, to keep track mostly.

Sunflowerous Reads

D.:

In English:

  • Rudyard Kipling “The Jungle Book”
  • Wonder by R.J. Palacio
  • Skelling by David Almond
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • Wildwood Imperium by Colin Meloy
  • How to Break a Dragon’s Heart by Cressida Cowell

In Russian:

  • Галина Демыкина “Мой капитан”
  • Э. Сеттон-Томпсон “Винипегский волк”, “Мустанг-иноходец”
  • Ж. Реми-мл. “Битва за огонь. Пещерный Лев”

Plus re-reads that I couldn’t possibly keep track of

C. read

In English:

  • Mercy Watson series by Kate DiCamillo
  • Captain Cat by Inga Moore
  • Arrietty (from Studio Ghibli Picture Book series)
  • The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore by William Joyce
  • Room on Broom by Julia Donaldson
  • Whale Shines: An Artistic Tale by Fiona Robinson
  • Together we are reading (taking turns) Appleblossom the Possum by Holly Goldberg Sloan

In Russian

  • “Минус и Большой Мир” Свен Нурдквист
  • “Серая Шейка” Д.Н. Мамин-Сибиряк
  • сборник “Волшебное Слово”
  • Басни Крылова
  • Аля, Кляксич и Буква “А” Ирина Токмакова
  • Вместе : “Мы живем в каменном веке” (Пешком в историю)

And again, lots of re-reads I didn’t write down

also we read Haiku Books

What have I noticed this month:

D. absolutely insists we wait for him for read-alouds, no picture book is too simple or too childish. I am really glad he cares still. I have made a resolution to have D. read at least one “classic” and one “award” book per month, but still let him have his way with series that he enjoys. All of these work out. The most re-read book for him was Harry Potter, that is his nightstand series of choice. There doesn’t seem to be a non-fiction in my records, but I am sure he read something…will ask him tomorrow morning.

C. is a confident and independent reader, she likes comic books a lot, much more than D. I do wish we had more time for read-alouds. This will be next month’s goal.
